This Comic's Cast:

I would assume one soldier is better than two swimmers with harpoons. The subs don't have weapons, so getting into a battle at the bottom of the ocean would be a bad idea.

Not that the subs don't come with them in Metal Slug, I just never added them on. That was too much effort.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
